Userboxes Location

You can find them at Category:Infobox templates..--Cometstyles 13:09, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

They're actually in Category:Userboxes. :) Or you can view them at Harry Potter Wiki:Userboxes. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 13:13, 3 September 2007 (UTC)
Thanks! Hufflepuff Half-Giant 17:47, 3 September 2007 (UTC)
Please try and spend some time with the encyclopedia rather than userboxes (that is why we are here after all). John Reaves (talk) 05:12, 4 September 2007 (UTC)
I have been working on several articles. Point taken, though. Hufflepuff Half-Giant 05:13, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Userboxes

Hey, I've noticed you've created quite a bit of userboxes the last few days. This is fine, however, just so you know there is a way to create custom userboxes if its something relatively specific. You can just use the following example code (which is totally bogus, I know :)):

{{Userbox
|id=DJ613 <!-- Some image or text //-->
|id-c=red
|id-fc=white
|id-s=larger
|info=Supports [[User:DarkJedi613|DarkJedi613]] for [[Minister for Magic]]
|info-c=black
|info-fc=grey
|info-s=normal
|border-c=grey
|border-s=2 <!-- in pixels (px) -->
}}

It creates:

DJ613 Supports DarkJedi613 for Minister for Magic


See {{Userbox}}. Hope to see more great edits from you soon. And get working on those things you want to fix/add! :) -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 02:38, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Hey thanks! Hufflepuff Half-Giant 02:53, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
Glad to be of assistance. :) -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 03:56, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Sirius Black's motorcycle

Hi - I saw you created two articles on the above subject, with the only difference being that the "B" in black was lower case. If, as I suspect, you created the first one and saved it without realising the capitalisation error, you can always move the page to the correct spelling. Next to the history button on the top of the page is a move button which can be used to move the page. Just type in the correct title, and save it, and the page will be moved to the new name, with the old page being used as a redirect. As it is, I have already redirected one page to the other. If you have any problems, feel free to use my talk page! Keep up the good work, - Cavalier One 07:25, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Yep, that was the reason. Thanks for the info. Hufflepuff Half-Giant 07:46, 5 September 2007 (UTC)


may 23

how do you know the battle of hogwarts was on may 23? Me_Potter_Fan 02:13, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

It's what I've concluded from the dates of the deaths listed for Severus Snape, Voldemort, and others. Many sources on this Wikia state it's May 23. If those are wrong, I am wrong. Hufflepuff Half-Giant 05:11, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

I cant find any evidence of it. Me_Potter_Fan 05:13, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

Okay. Hufflepuff Half-Giant 08:02, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

Trading Card Game

Hi - I noticed you uploaded the Diagon Alley image from the trading card game, and was wondering if you had access to more images from the game? They might be useful for illustrating some of the other articles here. I've looked for on-line scans, and they just aren't of a good enough quality to use (too small, etc). - Cavalier One 08:42, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

I have a few, and I intend to use a few of them. I found them while rummaging through old crap at my former residence. I'll put as many up as I can. I have Snape, centaurs, Diagon Alley, a Remembrall, Hogshead Inn, a forest troll, a mountain troll, a pet toad, and others. Hufflepuff Half-Giant 09:08, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Images

Is this the image you're referring to? If so, the main problem is the image apparently didn't upload properly. I had the same problem trying to upload images yesterday but thought it might be my computer. There may be a glitch with the upload procedure. I'd try uploading again under a different name in a day or so, but if that doesn't work, see if you can find JohnReaves on the Harry Potter IRC channel, or a sysop on the main wikia IRC for an answer. - Cavalier One 09:45, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Actually, I was talking about the image that can be found on Sybill Trelawney's page. Hufflepuff Half-Giant 07:00, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
Ah, I see now. I fixed it ... dunno what happened, but I removed the 140px and added a thumb tag and it worked ok. - Cavalier One 11:34, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
Interesting. I've never had that problem before. Oh, well. Hufflepuff Half-Giant 05:56, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
I had something similar when I was trying to do some thumbnails for my User Page. I had to decrease the px size by 10 ... it was strange indeed. I would have expected it to work in the form it was in as well. - Cavalier One 07:08, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

how weird....

i just found out your birthday is my half-birthday! i was born on November 23! how odd is that!!!! i guess that isn't very exciting to you...... never mind.... -LegolasFan- 76.214.52.217 15:54, September 1, 2010 (UTC) check out my user page!!!!!
